Daryl & James, Cliveden House Wedding

Featured by Style Me Pretty

If there were ever two people made for each other then it is Daryl and James.

Daryl is from NY and James is from London, their paths crossed after a chance meeting in a bar in NY.  After a whirlwind and at times long distance romance, Daryl moved to England to be with James.

They married on 30th June 2018 at Saint Mary & All Saints Church with over 100 guests, many of whom had travelled from around the world to help the happy couple celebrate.  Their wedding truly embodied the meaning of destination wedding with 4 days events and celebrations at the historic Cliveden House (the British estate where Meghan Markle stayed the night before the royal wedding just 10 days earlier).

They began their wedding weekend celebrations the day before with a welcome dinner in the historic French dining room at Cliveden House for their nearest and dearest which included a waiters singing Opera!

On the morning of the wedding the bride, bridesmaids and mothers all wore co-ordinating PJ sets while preparing for day ahead.  It was only fitting to capture them all seated on the amazing huge bed that had once belonged to Nancy Astor.

Daryl the bride, wore a timeless Oscar de la Renta gown and paired it with beautiful Jimmy Choo shoes. Her bridesmaids wore co-ordinated neutral beaded gowns. Post ceremony, they transported their guests to Cliveden in old fashioned red London buses and held their cocktail reception on the terrace over-looking the grand gardens of Cliveden.  As one of the hottest summers on record in England, it felt more like Italy than London.  They had 2 cakes: a traditional wedding cake with 25,000 iced dots and a groom’s cigar cake.  Their guests danced til the wee hours of the morning to live music.
